    JaK’s always has delivered when it comes to great steak. This location is a little on the noisy side, making conversation a little challenging, but not impossible. Food was on point, and as far as “value” eating out IS expensive. We don’t unless it’s a real treat, and paying current prices for excellent service and perfectly prepared food doesn’t bother me. I’m glad to support a local chain that has always held its standard with just great food.

    Food and service were fantastic. I love the look and the feel of the place and everyone was enjoying themselves. My only two gripes: 1) The Old-Fashioned was filled beyond the rim with small ice cubes. I've had the OF before with one large cube which is the standard for any decent bar. Possible the bartender just didn't know how to make an OF properly. 2) The Shrimp Cocktail only had 5 small shrimp but enough sauce for about 20. I've never seen a shrimp cocktail with so few shrimp. It's odd because the other portions were massive. Maybe some fell off on the way to the table?

    We'd been telling our son about the Halibut Fishwich, which is the best fish sandwich we've ever had. This was our fourth time ordering this sandwich and I feel that all 3 were sitting in the window for a good 10 minutes before they made it to our table. We normally go right at 11am when they open, but had a 12:30 reservation this time. I think it may have been a bit too busy for the staff that they had, or maybe sitting upstairs (for the first time) might have had something to do with it. The last time we went, the second our drink was empty, a new full glass appeared on the table. The food was hot and the two pieces of fish took up way more space than the bun. This time the amount of fish was cut in half and the food was pretty cold. Maybe it was just a bad day. We'll be going again, but next time hope for a full staff and to sit on the ground floor.

    Friday 11.30am reservations. Food Was excellent. This place is banging!! Front door hostess OUTSTANDING! so funny and welcoming. The only downside to a perfect restaurant: Our server was good but not excellent. My companion was mildly overweight. As we were being seated I was following far behind the party and I saw her face of disgust when they walked by. Then she saw me and realized that I belonged to the at party. And changed. Again, she was good but not as attentive as other servers there. For instance. We needed service. More water at our table and to palace our order, and she couldn’t be found. We still tipped 25%.

    Such a FANTASTIC place to go. We only go to the West Seattle location now, as the service, staff and food are just perfect. We went last night and asked to move our reservation forward, as due to the weather, our prior engagements were accelerated and we were done early, and the sweet blonde hostess said no problem, and immediately sat us in the loft; then one of the best servers, she had braces, was just so sweet and attentive; and a (No offense to anyone) what I think I remember as a bald guy, I think maybe he was the back of house manager, came around checking on everyone’s expeirence/food, is just a nice touch, that someone took time out of their busy evening to get feedback. We barely get this kind of experience at Ruth’s Chris, and that’s considerably more expensive, but everything was phenomenal. Drinks were delicious, steaks were cooked exactly how we liked them, and they have the best garlic mashed potatoes and crisp vegetables. 5/5 recommend to anyone.

    We love Jak's so much. Best steak in the city, even compared to the "fancy" places downtown/east side. Old school dinner salads, loaded baked potatoes (or get the UFO- mashed potatoes on top of a potato cake) and solid martinis make this our go to place!
